If you're an electrical guru, or even a self-taught tinkerer, you probably have a stack of wire spools lying around that looks like the one in the picture above.
If you're anything like me, you get frustrated when you need to cut a piece of wire and the spools are all tangled around each other or unraveled.
If this sounds like you, then I suggest making a simple rack to hold your wire spools. You can probably buy one of these, but in true TechShop spirit, I decided to make my own.
All you need is some scrap metal (or acrylic), and a piece of 5/8" tubing of some sort. I used a piece of copper tubing and a piece of scrap steel I found at TechShop. TechShop is a membership-based workshop that provides members with access to tools and equipment, instruction, and a community of creative and supportive people so they can build the things they have always wanted to make.
